New Delhi: Pakistan’s spy agency ISI is trying to forging an alliance of top three terrorist outfits Laskhar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen (HuM) all Pak-based, to carry out joint terror strikes on the Indian soil, Intelligence agencies have warned and reported.
According to Intelligence inputs, the ISI has brought about 30 highly-trained terrorists from the three outfits into Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) from Peshawar to infiltrate into the Indian Territory for launching attacks. These outfits will also share infrastructure, assets, sleeper cells in Jammu and Kashmir and terror training camps in close coordination with the ISI.
The ISI also organised a meeting of the three outfits in PoK under the supervision of ISI handler Abu Suleman to ensure unity among them. The fresh intelligence alert, based on the electronic intercepts, came just a day after terror attack on an Army camp in the border town of Tangdhar in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.
“The terrorists plan to target public places, tourist spots being visited by foreigners, iconic buildings as well as places of worship across the country,” Intelligence agencies warned.
It has also advised the government to take appropriate preventive and precautionary measures besides stressing on the border security to foil the infiltration plan.
“Security deployment at sensitive locations may be enhanced and local security units must increase the vigil,” it said.
According to sources, the ISI has instructed the terrorists to cross over to India in the next one month before the routes in the upper reaches are closed down due to heavy snowfall.
